Things to do from Playa Paraiso

Playa Paraíso is a beautiful locality in the south of Tenerife. It is currently one of the busiest areas of the island thanks to its excellent range of hotels and services for tourists.

In this post we present the things to do in Playa Paraíso so that you can enjoy the best holidays of your life. Before we begin, we suggest that you consult our summary of recommendations for organising your holidays in Tenerife.

  • Luxury yacht charter to cruise the Atlantic Ocean
  • Excursions to get to know Tenerife, its streets, flavours and aromas.
  • Paragliding over the sky of Tenerife

Paradise Beach

Welcome to Playa Paraíso, an ideal holiday resort with a good climate and crystal clear waters. It is located on the coast of the municipality of Adeje and is considered one of the most important tourist places on the whole island. Playa las Américas has made an effort to develop as a tourist resort, so it offers all the necessary services for the holidaymaker. In this area you will find an excellent hotel offer, with 4 and 5 star hotels.

Here you will find plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and leisure facilities. It is a great location for visitors and people who wish to live here.


The closest airport to Playa Paraiso is Reina Sofia Airport. A large international airport that receives visitors from over 150 countries. Throughout the year there is a high passenger traffic. The busiest times are weekends and the winter season, so the airport has been transformed to accommodate the high demand. Buses, taxis and rental cars are available in front of the airport.

Whale and dolphin watching

Royal Delfin Tenerife Catamaran Tour with Transport (7)

The coast of Tenerife is one of the best places for whale and dolphin watching all year round. We invite you to book a whale and dolphin watching boat trip in Tenerife. This is one of the most popular activities in Playa Paraíso among tourists.

The most common species in these waters is the bottlenose dolphin, which usually swim a short distance from the coast so they are the easiest to see. Other dolphins that also inhabit these waters are the Atlantic spotted dolphin, rough-toothed dolphin and common dolphin, but they are more seasonal and less common so it will be more difficult to spot them depending on the time of year you visit. You may also see pilot whales, which can reach up to 5 metres in length. They are also known as pilot whales and are easier to see.

Private boat trips

Private boat trips in Tenerife allow you and your friends and family to enjoy a different kind of day out on the ocean. You will enjoy the sea and the sun in an exclusive atmosphere.

Call us to define the number of participants and to clarify some doubts. You can celebrate special events on board and party Tenerife style. The tour includes a visit to the cliffs, drinks, food and the possibility to go down for a dip in the water.

Water sports are another of Tenerife’s must-do holiday activities. For those who want to experience extreme sensations and explosive adrenaline we recommend the water sports of Playa Paraiso.

But if you want to go faster on the water we recommend you to rent a jet ski. Take a ride with your partner or a friend to get away at top speed and explore the secret corners of the coast of Tenerife.

Finally, we recommend paragliding over Tenerife. After several days of diving and bathing in the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic, it’s time to take to the skies. See the view of the island like a bird and enjoy this paragliding adventure with fabulous thrills and sensations.

Feel alive, stay active and fill yourself with the energy of nature. The fresh air is renewing and the beauty of the landscapes of the island makes us feel full and enthusiastic.

We have different routes with different demands. The most difficult trails are those that go up into the mountains. They are only recommended for experienced people with a good command of vertigo. This type of terrain has a lot of rocks and slippery places.

For people who want to share with nature and breathe fresh air without complications, we have beautiful trails within the Laurisilva forests. This is a great opportunity to enjoy nature and its charms.

I hired the atlanca boat as a surprise for my husbands 40th birthday and it was honestly the best day and lots of fun. Easy to book, when we arrived Patrick did the paperwork and explained everything then Fran gave us all the safety information on how to ride the boat. Everything was provided and additional special touches were much appreciated. They were both great, really friendly and put us at ease. We had 3 hours booked and we got the full time, everything excellent. Highly recommended. Thank you

Alquilamos una excursión para ver cetáceos y dar un paseo de 3h. En general la experiencia estuvo bien. Toda la gestión de reserva fue fácil y el trato con Bananapalmbay fue un gusto.
Al llegar al barco tuvimos alguna confusión con lo acordado, pero tras comunicarse la empresa del barco con Bananapalmbay se solucionó y pudimos disfrutar del viaje. Además vimos ballenas piloto.
